The online network helps members learn about issues and elections, and take action with other voters through social media.
Votizen is an online community where people sign up and pledge to vote. Once you’ve made this commitment and joined the movement you can look at your official voting record, learn about important political issues, campaign for your candidates and write to your representatives, inviting others to add their signature to your letter.
Votizen is an independent company backed by the original investors in Facebook and Twitter. It claimed first place in every category at the Disruptathon Social Media innovation contest last week in Washington, D.C. The showcase for disruptive future thinkers gave the platform the number one spot for Best Presentation, Uniqueness, Design, Most Disruptive Potential, Most Liked Button and Best in Show. CEO David Binetti said:
The US political system is in desperate need of disruption. So we help people engage, inform themselves, and then act upon the causes that matter to them.
